Storyline

Chief Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh investigates the death of Alice Liddell who ran a home for unwed mothers. One of those residents is Sally Jupp who was a witness in a drugs smuggling and murder investigation in London. Sally works at the local manor house for the Maxies and it is apparent that eldest son Stephen has more than just a passing interest in her. The night after they announce their engagement, Sally is found strangled in her bed. The question is whether her death is related to the London investigation or a completely different reason altogether. Her engagement created a good deal of ill feeling among the Maxies and several guests in the house with any one of them having a motive to kill her. Written by garykmcd

Why so far from the books?
22 February 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I love Adam Dalgleish, love the character and the books. But after reading this book and seeing the TV adaptation, it's like two different stories. Why have they changed it so very much? It was an interesting story with enough drama and intrigue to make excellent telly without made up murders, invented drug rings and goodness knows what else. Also they updated all the stories in this TV series to the time it was made, instead of showing Dalgliesh's career over the years as the books do. I can understand that and maybe the premise of the book, which is so predicated on middle class post war values, wouldn't hold up to a 1980's setting. But to add so much silly action to it? Sorry, but I hated it.
